So I’ve been here in Colorado for over three months now.  During that time I have fell in love with the state.  I knew I would like it but my list before coming here was short and unproven.  I have put together a longer list of reason why I love Colorado.  I figured now was a good time as I’m officially a Colorado citizen.  That’s right, I’m not going back to Seattle.  I have a new home now.  As I said on Twitter and Facebook last winter I have green and white license plates with mountains on them.

My Top 10 Reasons Why I Love Colorado

1.  The Riding

2.  Weather

3.  People

4.  Small town life

5.  Slower pace

6.  Lack of traffic or need to drive

7.  300+ days of SUN (and the most amazing sunsets)

8.  Wildlife in town or everywhere for that matter

9.  Scenery

10.  Being able to see the stars

Bottom two pictures are mine, top are from the web.

There are a few things I don’t like:

1.  Brittle finger nails

2.  No Chipotle

3.  No Trader Joes

I think I can live with the above.
